    Just installed a Nest v3 thermostat. Now looking at putting in Nest wired Protect CO & Smoke detectors. Since we are doing a major development, we need to get the sparky doing all the electrics to provide us with Part P certificate. In his view, he is not confident that the regs will allow for a smart Smoke/CO. The question is what happens when the wi-fi/Internet is knocked off during a fire?? He has currently installed standard wired Smoke/COs.

    Sorry if this has been asked before. Anyone has any experience in this? Also any leads for getting best deals on a couple of Protects highly appreciated.

    If there is no internet it won't be able to alert your phone but will still work as standard smoke alarms.

    They have their own WIFI so will still be able to communicate with each other. So if there is smoke in the kitchen all of the other nest protects will alarm.

    There are no options for heat detectors with Nest so that may be a problem if you need sensors for kitchens, garages etc

    There is no requirement for heat detectors in kitchens, only recommendations. CO detection is also recommended for these areas.
